1) If the relevant binder hierarchy is exploded out (i.e. no collapsed folders), then selecting everything there will make the Outline view (duly sorted) do what you want. Each item (doc or folder) will be flat-listed and sorted according to its own mod date.
2) Doing a project search or using a Smart Collection will give you a flat binder list of docs. So, if you can catch everything you want with a Smart Collection, then you can invoke that, select all the resulting docs in the binder and your outline will once again give you what you want.

Obviously, the way to solve this is to offer a way in the binder column to sort by date modified, to bring up a list of the last (20) documents modified, in chronological order, and to allow direct navigation to the point in those docs where the last modification was made. Would be even better of course, if the list provided showed the doc name, the date[/time]of the last edit, and a few lines of text bracketing the last edit.

Keep the outline view up and use it to navigate between the documents instead of the binder (you can even close up the binder for this). I think some of the built-in “Layouts” set this up for you automatically. You won’t lose the list in the outliner in this case (I have not tried this recently, so I’m going off of memory here).

This is sort of possible in the outline view by adding the “last modified” column and sorting by that column. However, the behavior does not seem to be consistent, the order of the outline lines (docs) seems to reflect the nested structure of the binder folders before it lists the edit history… defeating the purpose if the purpose is a navigable chronological list of edit (writing) history.
